An undisturbed high frequency (HF) sine waveform symbolizes waves in the radio spectrum. Visualizing the threat to the radio waves that much of our tech (and hence civilization) depends on is an overlaid, damped sine wave; the result of coupling between an electromagnetic pulse and a target HF wave. The equal number of disturbed and undisturbed waves represents the notion that every wave can be altered. The semi-hidden Wndsn logo hints at the non-public nature of the research scope and findings, its simplified line shape symbolizes energy flowing, the same energy that is running the waves as well as the objective to be protected, hardened, and tested against. The bracket represents the shielding element, its open shape communicates that different wavelengths are taken into account and treated differently; allowed through vs. blocked off.
The background material reflects perpendicular to the observer and is flooding its surroundings, thereby concealing the features of the design in direct light.
